Lichia Liu spent half of her childhood in Taiwan, and the other half in Toronto. Nomadic by nature, she started to travel as soon as she could. In 2008, she began to carry travel sketchbooks to record her observations; this would turn into a lifelong habit and a powerful force behind her creativity. She is inspired by nature, urban landscapes, and people interacting with their environments. In 2013, she founded Gotamago, a stationery and gifts brand that features her watercolour illustrations.
